I'm trying to do a Web site for some people who are locked into a 
"contract" with an overpriced Web hoster. The host offers practically 
nothing other than ftping your files up. They even charge $3./mo. to 
have email forwarding. Their server (MS/IIS?) also messes up the mime 
when sending a .css file. Mozilla doesn't respond to "text" when it is 
expecting "css", although IE doesn't panic, but I have to embed all css 
in the actual files, which is a pain for updating. They basically get 
business on the newbie myth that hosting has to be local. As if you 
might need to hand-carry something over to them some day...Okay, I hate 

Anyway, I'd like a seamless way to move the entire site to my other Web 
hosters and just redirect a page request from bad host to good host. (My 
freinds aren't cool with moving the domain name until the "contract" 
runs out.) I used to know about an html way to redirect, but can it be 
really fast so people don't notice so much? Or is there some other idea 
y'all know about?
